So as it seems with a lot of you...I've had dreams of building a theater for a long, long time. Always had mini rooms growing up, but nothing more than a decent onkyo or denon receiver and some cerwin vega speakers! I was always updating that and along the way, made some ok "surround" sound rooms...but nothing even remotely close to what I've dug myself deep into recently....
Back in April of 2017, we bought a new house only 2 years old, with an unfinished basement and 9.5' ceilings!
...and I saw an area that I thought could be a great spot to build something in.
The blue on the ground is an outline of where the wall would eventually go and the red is under the upstairs stairway where I will put my gear, which will be right outside the room itself.
Here is an early image that I started on a few months after moving in...the room will be about 17'x21.5' when we are done...please don't mind my elite drawing skills!
I hired Shawn Byrne back in August of 2017 and after months and months of figuring out some details (with me going back and forth on the details and ultimately submitting myself to delving a lot further into things than I had originally planned or anticipated...but in all honesty, glad I am doing now. I don't want any regrets later, even if it takes a little longer or costs more to build)...we finalized the planning just several months ago and here some pics of the final plan, the only difference is it does not show the actual speakers we will be using as I changed my mind on those too as we went along and we never updated in the pics themselves...
And some of the gear we will be using:
QSC Core 110f
QSC DCA 1644 and 1622
Seymour Excellence Enlightor Neo 120" wide 16:9
Subs - (2) Rhythmik Audio FV25HP
Triad for rest:
(3) Gold LCR's
(6) Silver LCR's (surrounds)
(4) inceiling silver 9 rotators
Have made some progress since with framing, sheetrock, flooring, etc...which I will share soon...but figured I would start with this intro for now. BIGmouthinDC has helped a lot along the way so far...we still have a long way to go but really excited about making some more progress over the next several months!
